Government Relations & Advocacy Internship (Main Street America)
[Location information not provided]
Main Street America, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, has a 40+ year track record of supporting preservation-based economic development nationwide. We do this in partnership with a network of Coordinating Programs: public agencies or private nonprofit organizations that operate at the state-wide, county-wide, or city-wide level to provide capacity building, training, and resources to local Main Street organizations.
The State Government Relations & Advocacy Intern will support two projects aimed at increasing state advocacy capacity for Main Street programs. The first is to assist in the creation a national report documenting the structure of MSA Coordinating Programs with specific attention to their legislative histories, statutory language, and position in state government. The intern will approach the project in three phases: pulling together and assembling of existing information, research to fill gaps, and outreach to individual programs for additional context.
The second focus will be in participation and support to the Main Street Advocacy Community of Practice. MSA's strategic plan contains the long-term objective to build capacity and provide resources for coordinating programs, local leaders, and other partners, and the immediate goal to launch a Community of Practice for our advocacy in spring 2023. The intern will participate in outreach and development of the CoP model, assist in organizing, and utilize participation to help inform the report.
National Trust internships are temporary experiential learning opportunities with no expectation of employment at the conclusion of the internship.
For this internship, the National Trust is offering a stipend of $4,000 to help offset expenses. The period of the internship would be from approximately June 5 – July 28, for approximately 28 hours per week (some flexibility of schedule available).
